Reflect, refuel, refocus

Once we reach midlife we begin to crave a slower pace – more quality time to spend with family, friends and loved ones, freedom to enjoy creative pursuits and space to do the things we really want to do.

But for many of us, it feels so out of reach! After years of putting our own needs last in order to meet the demands of those around us, where do we even start? It can feel impossible to envisage living any other way.

If this sounds like you, next weekend’s guest on Girls Around Town has the solution…

Sarah McNicol helps hard-working, caring men and women in their 40s and 50s to create an exciting, fulfilling next chapter of their life. Her coaching programmes offer clients the time and space to totally rediscover their life and reclaim their future, inviting them to re-tip the scales and find greater balance between work, life and career.

Sarah will be sharing some of her own story when she joins Rosalyn and June in the studio on Sunday. Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out how she made shifts in her life to find a way of working and living that better suited her.

And how her new mid-year coaching programme is designed to help others to Reflect Refuel Refocus

Are you thinking of going it alone?

With more and more people (many of them women) deciding to change direction, giving up ‘proper’ jobs to start their own businesses, a few pearls of wisdom from someone who’s ‘been there, done that’ would surely come in handy, don’t you think?

In another double-header, this week’s show features not one but two guests who fit the bill as Becky Dobb and Penny Briant join June and Rachel to talk about going it alone…

They’ll be explaining what prompted them to launch their own micro businesses, how they set about it and how doing so has made a difference to their lives, both personal and professional.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to find out more when they chat to the Girls Around Town about some of the highs – and maybe a few of the lows! – along the way.

Whether you’ve already started heading down the same path or you’re hovering on the brink of following in their footsteps, this is one interview you won’t want to miss…
